Last Friday I got my ear pierced in my cartilage. I've been holding off from posting it on here because of disapproving parents. But it's been a week and they haven't noticed (or they've noticed and don't care).
SO. It didn't hurt when my ear was actually pierced, but it hurt afterwards and I can't sleep on it (which is unfortunate as I sleep on my left side). I can take it out in three months time, and then I'm replacing the bar with a ring.
My hair's not greasy - I took the photo just after I had a bath.
